Hello and Good Morning,
A bit frosty out there, but warmer than yesterday. Currently (6:42 a.m.) it is 27 degrees. Yesterday was, unfortunately, spent running around doing various errands. A trip to CVS ended up being longer than expected: I was picking up 3 prescriptions for moi, or so I thought. But one of them was not ready and the reason was that they did not have enough pills to fill the prescription! Then, dropping off a new prescription for Fletch I learned that our current insurance does not cover it. The out of pocket cost? Over $1,000. YIKES!! I did not get that filled. Will try again in the new year and see if our new insurance covers it. If not...back to the drawing board with his doctor.
Today promises to be more running around. Karyn comes to clean and will be here by Noon. At that point, Fletch and I will leave (getting out of her way and avoiding the noise of cleaning - LOL). We are going out to lunch and then will go to Colin & Mailing's to check on a few things, water the house plants and put the trash out for pick up tomorrow. A contractor was over doing some work while the kids were in town and now there seems to be a problem with the sink in the basement. Fletch will check that out...hopefully no major issues.
But on to nicer things. It's Wednesday, or specifically, Unraveled Wednesday, so let's link up with Kat and her Merry Band of Unravelers to see what everyone is making and reading these days. You all know that I didn't do any stitching last week, but I did manage to get a bit of knitting accomplished. The first Turning Leaves sock is off the needles!!
Isn't that just the prettiest? I had planned to cast on for Sock #2, but that has yet to happen. It will most likely to to Texas with me.
The second Christmas sock is almost finished:
(Clean and different Christmas tablecloth is on the table!!). Heading down the foot - about 40 more rows of that and then it will be toe decrease time. This one WILL be finished before we leave town.
On the reading side, a mixed bag. I finished The Colony by Audrey Magee. Not sure how I feel about this one. I found the writing awkward (though I liked the knitting references) and the story disturbed me (as I guess it should have). I'm still thinking about it, so there is that!
I returned several books to the library. This One I started reading, but could not get into. And Booth I knew I couldn't finish before we take off...and it was due back by 12/22 anyway. Then I tried The Netanyahus but again I couldn't get into it. Finally I started Eastern Shore Shorts a book of short stories all taking place on the Eastern Shore (duh), but I'm not finding it very interesting or very well written. Looks like I may be in another reading slump of sorts. Oh well, I will find something to take on the plane and we plan to visit Book People our first full day in Austin. Colin & Mailing have raved about this store, so I cannot wait!
Now it's time to pour a second cup of coffee and dry my hair (my head is COLD!!). Have a wonderful Wednesday!
